NEW YORK, May 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iFresh, Inc. (“iFresh” or the “Company") (Nasdaq: IFMK), a leading Asian American supermarket chain and online grocer, announced today that the Company donated 20,000 face masks, 200 KN95 respirator masks, and 1,000 pairs of gloves to local, New York City frontline workers. Half of the face masks and all KN95 respirator masks are FDA/CE certified and manufactured by Xiamen DL Medical Technology Co. Ltd., (“Xiamen DL”), a 70% owned subsidiary of the Company.
Eric L. Adams, Brooklyn Borough President and 2021 New York City mayoral candidate, along with Winnie Greco, President of Sino – America New York Archway Association Corp., picked up the donation supplies from the iFresh headquarter office. Adams stated, “I cannot express my gratitude enough for iFresh’s and the Chinese American Community’s support of our local community amid the COVID-19 crisis. Despite President Trump’s use of the inappropriate term ‘Chinese Virus’ that hurt countless Chinese Americans, the Chinese American Community is still making efforts to donate medical supplies to workers on the frontline. We applaud the community’s efforts and admire their determination to make a difference.”
Mr. Long Deng, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of iFresh, commented: “Helping our local community when and where we can has always been our mission as the leading Asian American supermarket chain. It is our responsibility to make New York City safe, and we will work together as a family to do so.”
